TRANSFORMING PEOPLE’S LIVES
The minimally invasive techniques taught at The Stewart Center are transformative for patients and dentists alike. Below are some examples of the powerful patient transformations that our clinical instructors and residents have accomplished.
John had a history of breaking teeth, having them repaired, then breaking the crown or the filling. This had occurred repeatedly to the point that he was considering dentures. After having his mouth restored, via Rejuvenation Dentistry, his mouth and teeth now work in harmony. He has gone over 10 years with a stable and healthy mouth.

Linda suffered from severe myofacial pain and pain associated with TMD. It started over 35 years earlier when a lower left bridge was placed in her mouth. After having her mouth rejuvenated, she has been pain and headache free for over 10 years now. Note the relief in muscle tension as illustrated in the before/after pictures.

Laurie was a 50 year old female at the time of treatment and in good systemic health. Her chief complaint was her worn teeth along with headaches and facial muscle pain. After a complete examination and diagnosis Laurie was first treated with a Condylar Centering Orthotic (C2O). She wore the C2O full time for 4 weeks coming in for weekly shim adjustments with Dr. Stewart. Once her joints were stabilized she was pain free. A definitive diagnosis was then made with hinge axis mounted models and a complete diagnostic wax up completed. The case was restored with Emax crowns on teeth #3,14,19 (these were done to replace old crowns). The remaining teeth were restored with minimally invasive composite resins. The result is a functional, harmonious occlusion with great esthetics and complete preservation of her natural tooth structure.
Gregg’s chief complaint was facial pain, soreness in his TMJ and headaches. He had several consultations with prominent dentists in San Diego. His treatment plan options involved full coverage crowns on all his teeth. The fees ranged from $50,000 to $85,000. More than the cost, Gregg’s main concern was having all his teeth prepped down for crowns. With our BioRejuvenation approach, we were able to restore Gregg with minimal prep composite resins on all his teeth, except for his lower right bridge and two molar crowns which were replaced with traditional crowns and bridge techniques. The result… a relaxed face from a restoration of his vertical dimension, and a beautiful smile.

Brenda suffered from daily head, neck and TMJ pain. She and her husband are chiropractors and for years the only relief she could get was from chiropractic adjustments, but even then the relief was only temporary. Through the Texas Center’s rejuvenation approach, we stabilized and centered her condyles with full-time wear of the condylar centering orthotic (C2O) and restored Brenda with minimally invasive rejuvenation consisting of additive composite resins on 25 teeth and replacing 3 existing crowns. Other than the 3 crowns, none of Brenda’s natural tooth structure was reduced. Her vertical dimension was restored with the additive composite resin bonding. With her TMJ fully seated, her facial, head and neck muscles are now relaxed and in harmony. The result is a dramatic difference in the way she looks and feels!
Blake has been suffering from a lifetime of unending dental issues plus daily neck and head pain. After getting her bite stabilized, she was restored using porcelain crowns on her top teeth and a combination of bonding and porcelain on the lower. Notice in her before and after picture how much more relaxed the eye and and facial muscles look. It’s amazing how our faces change when the muscles are relaxed and not in constant tension.

Richard had extreme wear on his teeth. His treatment with Dr. Lewis consisted of C2O therapy for 11 months, composite bonding on all teeth to open his vertical and allow for proper stabilization of his joints.

Marisa suffered from structural breakdown, jaw clicking, and grinding. Dr. Hansen put her into a C2O to get her stabilized, obtained a hinge axis record, then a wax up with ideal occlusion, tooth form, and length. Finally, this was transferred to Marisa’s mouth using restorative techniques learned at the Stewart Center.

Lacy suffered from significant pain in her jaw for years, which caused chronic headaches. Dr. Rosen put her into C2O therapy followed by minimally invasive BioRejuvenation Dentistry. Lacy is now pain free and is much more relaxed.
